lighting ?

Hi all

What would be a sufficient length of time to leave the lights on? I have xenia, polyps, and ricordea.

Thanks

What type of lighting do you have? 10-12 hours a day is good. Depends on the algea growth in your tank. For me, my actinics come on at 11 am, off at 11 pm. My 10,000K come on at noon and off at 10 pm. My moonlights run 24/7.
